Paper Abstract

A novel liquid crystal display (LCD) driving concept for light shutters is shown here, based on driving signal polarity reversal controlled by the driving voltage integral across the LCD switching element electrodes, as opposed to plain periodic polarity reversal. This driving scheme optimizes the DC driving signal voltage balancing and guarantees compensation of the long-term (DC) component of the driving voltage within one polarity reversal cycle, irrespectively of driving voltage amplitude variations. The possibility of using low driving frequencies reduces the LCD switching elements power consumption significantly compared to standard driving techniques, which is important for portable devices such as welding light shutters.
